Oh, Bradley James, how are you so awesome? why do you do this to me? why is the universe so large? what is the purpose of life?

As you can see, sixteen hours on a bus have not diminished one bit my natural urges for knowledge.

Folk, I adore that dude's dorkitude like I adore cake and kittens and freakin' trees, ok? don't judge me, you love him too.

He gets a tag for his coolness is on par with Ackles' and Quinto's. He shall be my squishy Beej, because I'm lame and tired atm.


Also, and possibly more importantly, I'm wearing my new Peanuts hoodie which I love because it's so cute. So. Cute.

Ok, you crazy bunch. We've been doing some practice in my writing shop, and one of the prompts was to write a little piece to a provided photograph. I, being me, feel like taking this to the next level since I feel that doing this just once was not enough for me to fully enjoy it, you know, sample the textures and play around with it for a little while. I felt vaguely cheated out of it.

Now, the deal a present to you is as follows: you prompt me with two words, the first one I will use as a reference theme for a photograph, and the second will be the actual prompt for the written part of the composition. You can provide fandom, character or whatever else you feel would bracket the field.

Fandomwise, the usual suspects apply; original work is always a pleasure and the length would be kind of ficlet-ish (believe me, I could be more vague here).

Another option (because I really like you) would be for you to provide the photograph and the second word of the prompt. I want to work on my picture-taking skills a bit, yes, but I also want to expand my creative horizons, you see.

How 'bout it? Would you help a lost little soul out?

some photos I've taken of the sun doing sunny things. Also, I'm bored. Please do note that these are all through car windows, some of them while parked, others while in motion, but all equally loved by me.

shine on, you crazy diamond )

Well, that's that, folks. Back to whatever it is you do when I'm not bored out of my skull. Thank you for your time.

Earlier this morning Einstein tried to jump onto my lap but slipped, in order to avoid hitting the floor in a harmless undignified heap he clung to my arm, after sound cussing and much pain, I wound up with some vaguely questionable-looking scratches on my forearm. Which in and of itself isn't such a remarkable occurrence considering that, well, I have a cat.


I also have a tendency to clumsiness and I'm prone to accidents like cutting my thumb while chopping veggies or something along those lines. Again, nothing note worthy that doesn't happen to everybody and their mamas. I do, however, have this job where I've been seen crying and where people like to assume things out of freaking thin air. Like this mother who came to bring cake for the kiddies and upon looking at the wounds wells scratches on my arm decided to go to the counselor and ask her to see me, the counselor then proceeded to ask about my life, my boyfriend, my career, my family, my potty training everything she could think of to make sure that I was not cutting myself.


I mean, it's understandable, my boyfriend works at a copy shop, my family is spread thing along the entire continent, I'm studying psychology (the forgotten, weaker, lamer cousin twice removed of any kind of natural science) in a university known for it's outstanding (ish) business school, clearly it's gotta be so sad and depressing being me. Clearly self-harm is the natural conclusion.

I wonder what would have happened had I attempted to hide the scratches, or hey, if I didn't have pictures of my cat all over the place in my cellphone. Might have gotten institutionalized right then and there.

Fortunately the counselor saw things for what they were (classicist paranoia, mostly) and let me off the hook. Things were then improved further when checking the flist and finding lovely things such as [livejournal.com profile] winterlive  making people happy out of the goodness of her heart,  Mr POTUS and Mr VPOTUS being kind of awesome (as usual) and, oh yeah, this.

Comments owed and emails to reply to will have to wait until I've showered. Please, before you leave, do take a moment of your time to love on my new icon, thank you.

It's come to my attention that I don't post enough advertisement for Cordoba. This seems wrong to me.

I've been living here since July 2003 and I'm still in love with how new it seems every time I go out. It would bother me that I still feel every bit an alien as I felt back then, all of seventeen and with hopes and illusions bigger than my head, but it doesn't because the hopes and illusions have been tempered by the life I've shaped for myself and, unlike then, they seem reachable now, I have grown roots as deep as I can make them go anywhere that isn't my home, friends and loves have come and go, I still want to travel the world, visit India and live in New Mexico, I still want to grow my own garden and I still want to make my living writing (not that you'd know), but in the meantime, walking down streets I know everything about and discover a new color where there used to be just a blank wall excites me enough to take my time and live here, now.

In honor to this declaration of love, I'm giving you more pics. Hopefully I'll be able to make a bit of a series out of this. The need to take pictures is overwhelming these days, it fits that I take advantage of it.

through my lens )

Anything in particular you'd like to see from Cordoba, or my apartment? I'm charitable.

I've actually had a IJ account for a few weeks now, it's still mostly for LJ backup purposes, but if you wish to friend me there, I'll friend you back, in fact it is highly likely I'll friend you even if you don't friend me at all, I've been known to do that. Anyway, I'm coffee_and_ink over there ::takes a moment to love user name::

In another front, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] icymorning  I got to see this first thing in the morning, and so I'm spreading the love. 

Um, I achieved the crane this morning? Am incredibly proud, thereby nullifying the whole point of yoga. Maybe I'll ponder on my ways after I'm done basking in the joy. Joy is good.

You know the feeling when you're cleaning up and diligently not-studying and it occurs to you, there's an oven in your kitchen that you could use to make stuff. Well, hi! I made scones. Sort of.

They're according to the recipe (except for the part where I forgot about the sugar and the epicness of my facepalming cannot be rendered with mere words), they just don't look a whole lot like scones. BUT THEY ARE.

I'm so happy. Makes me feel useful and stuff.

I made these babies! )

Will now try them and proceed to document this historic moment when I used my oven out of my own volition, no external pressure, no expectations to meet, no one else but me to please. Eeeeee!!! ::is silly::

Man, I accomplish stuff when being all proactive.

That pics meme that's been doing the rounds on my flist. Well, monkey sees, monkey does.

The Rules:
1. Answer each of the questions below using [Flickr]
2. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
3. Copy the URL of your favorite photo into this site.
4. Then share with the world.

it's a colorful place )

As promised, here be Cas' pick-me-up. Hope you like, bb! What am I talking about, of course you'll like it.

They're only eleven, but I still wouldn't recommend it in dial-up cases.

catch it while you can, is the feel good hit of the summer )

Well, darling, here's my two cents, hope they help somehow. ::blows kisses::

Since everyone and their mamas are doing this, I'm doing it too. Peer pressure, anyone?

Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair - just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with the picture.

'tis my tired!face )
But the world looks better now, after a HIGHLY intellectual conversation with Cas wherein Supernatural and Jensen's arms were discussed with only the bare minimum of dolphin noises required. We are heroes.

Okay, so I know you've all seen it by now (and if you haven't dude, Gollum was better informed of the world outside, I mean even I had seen it, so.) but it's one of those things you (I) want to put on repeat till the cows come home.

::thrums with excitement:: Cannot. Wait.

A while ago I promised [personal profile] liptonrm that I'd post pictures of Cordoba and sort of repay her for the vicarious experience she provided while visiting Toronto.

Architecture is, in my opinion, what makes a city beautiful, in my dreams, every city in the world will have found the way to balance buildings with parks, open sky schools for children and glass windows instead of walls for hospital bedrooms (so you can see the outside, not so the outside can see you), residence buildings will have communal gardens/backyards and I will live in a house with a porch where I will sit to read the afternoon away and will not be bothered with the noise of cars because people will ride bikes to work, will walk and will love to breath clean air... but that's not what I'm showing here, oddly enough, most of the pictures I've taken of the city are sadly lacking on natural subjects, there are trees of course, but they're not the subjects of the pic itself, they're just part of the composition (when it actually looks like a composition, mind), maybe it's because I haven't actually left the city that many times and have no perspective on the surrounding greenery.

There are at least hundreds of photos you will not be seeing because they're out of focus are not digitalized and I no longer have a scanner, nor do I have the time/patience to upload them all into the internetz, even if I did have a scanner, the second reason also applies to the ones taken with a digital camera; but there is enough material to grant more than one post on the subject.


Córdoba )

There'll be more, as I find stuff in my hard drive and make friends with my cam again. Hope y'all enjoyed the little, rambly tour.

Um, I drew this butterfly the other day. And then I put up on the wall.

tea_and_ink: (writing)
Uh, yeah. This one's for [personal profile] winterlive , from nearly a month ago...

::hangs head in shame::

Well, you guys know how difficult being a genius is, I mean, this kind of stuff, it just slips out of our very, very busy minds ::cough::

I'm gonna go now, go back to do geniuses stuff. It's a tough life, mine.

So, caught this one while browsing for, get this, Spn meta, and obviously had to share because it's so worth it. The author describes it as character study with a healthy dose of comedy. And well, it is Max and Alec, where would we be without comedy?

Really interesting, especially because it's sprinkled with S1 Max which further supports my theory that Max and Alec are, at the end of the day, pretty much the same.

Volunteered to tickle [personal profile] elohvee's curiosity. And here are the icons she asked about.

1. Reply that you wish to take part, and I will pick four of your icons.

this one's in the top three definitely. She's (it's totally a she) up there, sitting on her tree branch with her book and her bare feet, surrounded by green and red. I look at it and think freedom. That's pretty much the feeling, and the reason why I love it so much.

This is kind of self-explanatory, I think. It's Jensen's mouth, and neck and partial collarbone, but mostly the mouth. It's all skin and lips and honestly, what do you think about when you look at it? Plus, there's the coloring, it does the trick rather neatly I'd say.

This is the Doctor, he'd shake your hand and make a clever remark about your antics and the proceed to be the ruling king of geekyness; while doing so, he'd let slip in a couple of his smiles and then, the sun will shine and glittery ribbons will fall from the sky. It's the power of the smile. He makes me happy every. Single. Time. It's almost childish in it's gleefulness. Gotta love that alien boy.

That's a line from Scully, can't really remember when she said it, or even if she did say it, but it sounds like something that would come out of her mouth. And anyway, it's so Scully, so inquisitive and perfect for the big questions that get asked in this journal. It used to be a Dean icon, but since it was homemade, I kept looking at it and deeming it lacking somehow, not a feeling I like to associate with Dean, so it's on leave until I figure out just what's missing, I mean it's got Dean, isn't that enough?
Anyhow, in the mean time, Scully snark will do.

Just caught wind of this vid again, and I remember seeing it a while ago which probably means you're most likely to have seen it as well. But, man, this is too good not to want a second go!

The ladies of Firefly/Serenity in all their glory. Reminds me how much love I had for that series, and for Joss' female characters in general, if you want to get, you know, general.

It was made by YFish42 (user name in youtube) and it is fabulous!

The other night I was kinda creative, so attempted some drawings. I'm quite pleased with what came out, actually, which is nine kinds of awesome considering that for all of five months or so, I hadn't been able to draw something I liked.

The first one is a flower, don't know what kind of, though. The girl is a failed copy of this Kurt Hasley failed because it's not exactly the same, I think at some point I messed up, and ended up giving it my own twist, I really don't care because I love her, in fact I think I should name her ::ponders::

This link is for curious people.

In other news, Wilco is made of sunshine and puppies and I'm absolutely in love with Jesus, etc. just because. So go, listen and adore.

School remains an absolute attention-whore, but what can I do? It's a habit I must enable. Sad, I know. 

This all. School's calling for me again, and really, the novelty and thrill are gone.

Last night I was in dire need for something to do with my life in order to NOT hit hit refresh every two minutes to see if they had uploaded "All Hell Breaks Loose Pt2" already....

So, went to my new crack-dealer veer.com and came up with this:
